LANAP: Everything You Need To Know

Posted on 8/22/2022 by Amir Hosseini, DDS
LANAP is an acronym that stands for Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure. It is a dental procedure that uses lasers to remove plaque and tartar from teeth. LANAP has many benefits over traditional dental procedures, such as less pain, less bleeding, and minor swelling. Here is what you should know.
